It is a service that enables us to divide incoming network traffic among numerous resources, including virtual computers. By intelligently routing requests, it guarantees fault tolerance and high availability. Application performance is enhanced, and resource utilization is optimized by load balancing. SSL/TLS termination and public and private load balancing are supported. Using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console or APIs, load balancers are simple to set up and configure.

Pros
Oracle
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has a generous free tier, moreso than other hyperscalers, with an always-free tier that guarantees certain products are always free
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure allows you to size VMs with differing combinations of CPU and RAM, which is contrary to other hyperscalers that have specific pre-defined combinations only
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regularly provides free certification exam offers

Cons
Oracle
  • Navigating the UI takes lots of getting used to. It reminds me of older GCP (just to get used to where everything is).
  • Permission for different things always seemed to be more difficult than it really needed to be. Once you got them set up you were good but updating anything or creating new permissions for just about anything took longer than I thought it should.
  • Based on how the buttons were laid out, it was pretty easy to delete all of your DNS records, and backing them up was not as intuitive as I'd like with the UI, but it was easy to do using a script.

Performance
Oracle
In our project where we are handling Big data, Oracle Cloud helped us a lot by improving its performance and reducing the time taken. Its role-based security helped us to manage the privacy in our project. When there was load, its scalability feature helped us a lot by scaling it to a configured higher scale.

Oracle
Overall it is amazing, there is always room for improvement. We have weekly updates that tend to slow the program used more and more. We had to change some reports within Oracle because the others wouldn’t load. This is tied to our payroll and the delays are causing many time constraint issues and panic. We have to create a new report when one breaks. Otherwise awesome!

We did an proof of concept between Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Amazon Web Service and Microsoft Azure. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure was the clear winner with us because of support of the product. The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure support staff was very knowledgeable and helpful getting us up and running with a bit of time investment. This pushed Oracle Cloud Infrastructure out ahead of the other two products.

Contract Terms and Pricing Model
Oracle
was not part of initial purchase team. Anyways, i think unit pricing and billing frequency is good compared to other Cloud service providers, when it comes to Cloud Capital expenditure & Operational expenditure. Would be more interested in exploring more options where customers can get more cost relaxations on trying out new cloud services in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for example a new App or a feature

Return on Investment
Oracle
  • It improved the performance of all the applications we migrated by an average of ~90%.
  • OCI storage reduced the cost by an average of 40% on all the migrations we did. This includes backups as well.
  • Object Storage Archive is the most reliable and cheapest storage available for DB backups or application backups. This reduced our storage costs significantly compared to on-premises.
  • The minimum volume size for block volume is 50 GB. This forced us to use more storage on some applications but the impact of the cost increase is < 5%.
  • Lack of reduced redundancy storage options in object storage may have increased costs by > 8% for our use-case.
